Building materials giant to create 20 jobs at new facility

Travis Perkins' new facility in Worksop

Twenty jobs are to be created following the completion of a 1,933 sq m builders’ merchant facility in Worksop.

Travis Perkins is set to move into the purpose-built facility imminently and says it will create the jobs when it opens in July 2022.

Property development and investment company CEG managed the build of the bespoke unit, which is part of the Vesuvius development off Sandy Lane.

Will Moss, acquisition director at Travis Perkins, said: “We’re really excited to have secured this new two-acre site in Worksop, which will be a key branch for Travis Perkins, providing a fantastic offering for our customers. It’s scheduled to open in July and this means we’ll be able to create new jobs in the community and help support Worksop’s construction workers and tradespeople with the expert knowledge and advice that they come to expect from Travis Perkins.”

CEG is currently managing the regeneration of the 17.75 ha Vesuvius scheme.

Planning permission has been secured for more than 200,000 sq ft of employment space on the site.

Will Martin, strategic land lead at CEG, said: “We welcome Travis Perkins to this thriving business community. This brownfield regeneration has proved a success with many companies thriving on the site. It has been the largest speculative development of this scale and quality in Worksop for many years and we continue to see strong interest in the space from well-known national trade and industrial occupiers alongside smaller, local businesses.”
